Having read this book several times before, I was a bit leery of it as an audiobook. it was amazing. The narrator captured the tones of serious threat and emotional candor and real fear as well as the moments of whimsy and ridiculous (Orson's made up responses for instance) inherent in Christopher Snow's voice. Truly a good story told very well.
Typical Dean Koontz book in my opinion. Hard to get into but the ending is usually great. Really love the ending of this book but was very bored through the first half.
yes I would. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator had a great voice that was easy to listen too.
The monkeys in the house. Too creepy!
His calm sexy voice. Very easy to listen to.
The story is great, but the chapters in the book are out of sync with the chapters in the recording. Narration is good.
Great book to get lost in
The whole gang Including Orson and Mongo Jerry
Don't think I have, but HE WAS AMAZING. I will look for more of him as narrator.
was caught at the edge of my seat in a few places... even kept car running in parking lot to finish some chapters..
I read this set a long time ago and couldn't remember who the author was.. The story stayed with me and it took some time, but I hunted the story down and bought it the next day! It didn't disappoint even though I knew the ending.
Audiobook. The characters in Fear Nothing are well done. The lead, Christopher Snow, has a genetic disease that pretty much enables him to do what ever he pleases, so long as he is completely unexposed to all but the dimmest of light. He has a handful of friends that love him and basically, he’s a happy guy. Not a spoiler with that information, you’ll get that within the first few paragraphs. The remainder of the story involves the efforts of Snow to explain mysterious changes in the people and animals located in the small town of Moonlight Bay. Suspend beliefs, it’s science fiction. However, genetic manipulation is probably farther along than it was at the time this book was written. Although in typical Dean Koontz fashion, the story is presented in a manner to be spooky, the unknown capabilities of genetic science gives one pause.
Took me a while to get used to the narration of Keith Szarabaika. He worked hard at delivering the netherworld-scary rhythm … maybe a little too hard.
Personally, I found the ending a bit anticlimactic, and was hoping for more heroic efforts on the part of Christopher Snow and his band of friends. Ultimately he does not right the wrongs of others … no happily ever after scenario. Think the worst and you’re pretty close to the truth.
Ready for the next stage.
The surf addicted, closet millionaire, Bobby. Or maybe the bad ass girlfriend, with the unrevealed but intriguing past, Sasha. Who can choose!
Orson meeting Monkey Joe.
I would totally date Christopher Snow. He's the coolest.
It was a struggle to even finish listening to this story. I am a big Dean Koontz fan, but this one was just not good.
Since this is part of a two-part series, I became quite attached to Christopher Snow. He reminds me quite a bit of Koontz's other multi-book hero, Odd Thomas. I've always loved Koontz's underdog heroes and Christopher Snow is no disappointment. The usual weirdness is present, but there's also a social slant (i.e. when do you move from science to playing God?) It took a chapter or two for me to warm up to the narrator, but once I did, I can't imagine anyone else doing Christopher Snow and if Koontz ever writes more in this series, I sincerely hope the same narrator performs them. The action was good, the science believable. As is typical with Koontz's writing, there are times when passages go on a bit longer than they could have, but it's not a deterrent. Koontz loves his words and he'll jam as many in there as he can. There are times when heit seems like he writes with a thesaurus sitting right next to his keyboard, looking up the least used word possible for a description. He tends to be a bit verbose, but, I don't mind. In the end, it almost always pays off. All of the typical Koontz elements were present: dog, check. Sarcastic friend, check. Strong-willed, smart, sassy woman, check. A truly enjoyable ride.
I'm a hardcore reader and art student. ;)
Funny Mystery Thriller
Yes it did. I didn't foresee the people who help the main character would have something major done to them.
This might be weird, but I like where he fought the animals, and were he mention Nancy Drew.
Yes, I had a lot of laughter from it.
